Jo Konta takes on five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams today
Jo Konta has history in her sights but must handle the pressure of a nation when she takes on five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams today.
The world No 7 bids to become the first British woman to reach the Wimbledon final for 40 years when she faces her childhood idol.
The 26-year-old is the first British woman to make the Wimbledon semi-finals since Virginia Wade in 1978. A victory over seven-time Grand Slam champion Williams would make her the first Briton into the women’s final at the All England Club since Wade won the title in 1977.
